But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.
A problem that I've had at times - and you may have had as well - is being a bit too quick to confess and seek God's forgiveness. What I mean is that, since God promises to forgive my sins and not hold them against me, I can quickly get the confessing out of the way and move on ... often to find myself right back at what I just confessed. Something is seriously wrong with that!
The Bible calls us to something more than a simply "I confess: I did it and I'm sorry, so thanks for forgiving me." It's a word we don't use in our everyday lives very often: repentance. What exactly does it mean and how can practicing true repentance allow God to transform us more and more into the image of his Son?
That's what we'll be talking about this coming Sunday, June 26th, as we look at James 4:1-10. It may be the missing part in your Christian walk and the key to experiencing a more abundant life with Jesus. I hope you'll be able to join us.
